Ways To Improve Your Las Vegas Home for the Holidays

December 17, 2019

Now that the holidays are in full winter bloom, it's a great reason to get your Las Vegas home in order for Yuletide guests. You have the usual sprucing up that has to be completed before everyone is allowed in. But is your home, itself, ready? Or could it need some updated living room furniture and energy-efficient plantation shutters?

If you want to give your guests a warm and cozy home, try these ideas to improve your home for the holidays.

Give Your Windows Energy-Efficient Interior Shutters

But if you install plantation shutters over your windows, you can give your room a finished look that also brings out your decorations. Shutters also can effectively mitigate sun glare during short winter days. They are perfect in places like the living room, so no one has to open presents with a harsh sunset hitting them in their eyes.

By improving your Las Vegas home for the holidays with plantation shutters, you attain both elegance and energy-efficiency. That’s because when Jack Frost comes around, you can shut the treatments to provide an energy-efficient benefit. Plantation shutters have been called the best window coverings to stop air flowing through your windows -- and that keeps the pleasant air inside and the cold air out.

Of course, if you chose to pair energy-efficiency with status, you should use a faux wood shutter, like our Polywood® plantation shutters. Polywood is up to 70% more energy-efficient than hardwood shutters and up to 1600% more energy-efficient than stock aluminum blinds. You can even cover your specialty-shaped windows with Polywood plantation shutters, which means that all your windows will look stylish while still maintaining a constant temperature in your home. 

It’s Time For Updated Furniture In The Living Room

Now that your windows are covered, you should consider what guests will be sitting on. If your chairs, couches, and tables are starting to come apart, the holidays are a wonderful time to upgrade. By switching out an old sofa, or adding a set of leather chairs for guests, you can give your rooms a style that’s perfect for lounging around. Plus, your friends will be much cozier sitting on furniture that wasn’t purchased during the 1930’s. After all, how many times can you turn that cushion anyway?. 

Add Decorations To Every Room In The House

You put up the tree and decorated the main rooms in festive embellishments. But there’s no better feeling for your overnight guests than finding a tiny piece of the holidays in their own bedroom. And a bit of mistletoe in the kitchen can raise your spirits when you’re stressing about dinner and desserts.

Decorations shouldn’t be overbearing, and try not to think that you need to fill the house withseveral decked-out trees. But a small touch here or there can do a lot for your holiday morale.

Improve Your Las Vegas House For The Holidays By Changing Out Inadequate Lighting Fixtures

Ensuring that your lighting fixture fits your space should be on your holiday wish list.

New sofas, decorations, and energy-efficient window treatments are great, but it doesn’t matter if they are poorly lit. Improving your home for the holidays should include replacing ineffective lamps and chandeliers. Your corner lamp can provide enough light when it’s just you lounging around, but when guests arrive, you’ll need plenty of better lighting.

Most lights are simple to put in and can transform an area. TheylLighting can eliminate room shadows cast from furniture. If a new fixture isn’t an option, just make sure your fixtures aren’t missing any globes or hoods. And installing a dimmer switch lets you adapt the fixtures to you holiday fairy lights.
